    Off to Africa!
  2. Soldiers patrolling

    There's also the enactment of any/either of the following: MACA Military Aid to the Civil Authorities MACC Military Aid to the Civil Community MACP Military Aid to the Civil Power MAGD Military Aid to other Government Departments
  3. Soldiers patrolling

    Do RMP/RAFP/Naval Regs still get attested as Special Constables in the local force?
  4. BBC: Police fitness tests failed 1,863 times in 12 months

    A large proportion of which are likely to be carrying injuries and trying to return to work.
  5. BBC: Police fitness tests failed 1,863 times in 12 months

    Non-story. Police forces have high pass rate of 95-99.8% pass rate for fitness test is the correct story.
  6. Motorway Regs Exemption

    You can separate this into two parts, Policies and Regulations/Requirements. Any company, trust, authority etc can have policies to put a speed limiter onto a vehicle. By the nature of the limiter being fitted, the Regulation prohibiting Lane 3 use comes into force. Tons of regs for speed limiters for LGV, HGV and passenger vehicles out there.
  7. Motorway Regs Exemption

    The reasoning behind the Lane 3 restriction for ambulances is based on that when ambulances are not being used to respond to an emergency they are speed limited to 62mph. Vehicles that are speed limited are not permitted to use Lane 3 of the motorway. When in "999 mode" the limiter is removed from the vehicle and the ambulance can therefore use Lane 3. "Speed limited vehicles When a Trust vehicle has a speed limited engine, it MUST NOT be driven in the right hand lane of a motorway with three or more lanes unless there are road works or other diversionary instruction permitting it. Limited vehicles will normally have a sticker advising the driver of its restriction, where limited, this would normally either be to 62mph (100kph) or 56mph (90kph) depending on the vehicle type."
  8. ESIBS vs Dutysheet

    Me too. I was assuming the OP was to be in a non-supervisory role.
  9. ESIBS vs Dutysheet

    I've not used ESIBS but Dutysheet is very good with only a couple of (minor and manageable) niggles, such as the inability to retrospectively book shift and the lack of functionality for accepting an event where a duty already exists (e.g. you want to go to a meeting for 1 hour during your response shift). Note. It is vital that users of Dutysheet have all of their contact details correctly entered into it for Dutysheet to operate effectively. If this is all good, the communication capability of Dutysheet is excellent.

  11. Another vettting question

    There's be no harm in emailing them and letting them know.
  12. Complete non-event. Disgraceful.

    Another one here:
  14. A MAN has admitted impersonating a police officer in Wrexham. Magistrates in the town heard from Helen Tench, prosecuting, how the officer spotted Carl Thornton, 29, driving along the High Street towards Abbott Street wearing a high visibility stab vest shortly before 1am on Sunday. Other officers were requested to look for the black Jaguar and Thornton, of First Avenue in Llay, was stopped in Queens Square. The officer who stopped Thornton saw a dash cam at the rear of the vehicle, as well as a strip of LED lights and numerous ‘response’ jackets. Miss Tench added that there was a light on the roof of the car and also a police response book which contained a note which referred to Thornton as ‘PC 52’, and said he had stopped a vehicle. Thornton was wearing a jacket with a body camera, navy T-shirt “with facility for epaulettes”, black combat trousers and boots – and also had handcuffs. Miss Tench added that Thornton told officers: “I work with you guys, enforcing the law”. Thornton pleaded guilty to impersonating a police officer and possession of a bladed article, namely a Swiss Army knife. Emma Simoes, defending, said Thornton would receive credit for an early guilty plea. Not all the items found in the vehicle were for impersonating a police officer, she added, as Thornton had been a marshall for rally and car events, and was also a CB radio enthusiast. Thornton disputed the evidence given in court relating to a police incident response book, which he said was just a response book, which officers had seized as sealed evidence and had told Thornton he could not see it. There was no suggestion, Miss Simoes said, that Thornton had been in contact with any members of the public. Miss Simoes added that the knife in a pouch was concealed and Thornton had “not been brandishing it”. Thornton had mental health issues, the court heard, and needed help to address the underlying causes of his offending. Magistrates adjourned the case until August 1 for a pre-sentence report. Thornton was granted bail on the condition that he reside at his current address and observe a 7pm to 7am electronically-monitored curfew.
  15. Abstracting water from the mains

    Going back to the OP question of "Any offences?". Yes, potentially offences under section 174 of the Water Industry Act 1991.
